Ah, so tired. I just wrote my English essay on The Grapes of Wrath. It’s complete trash, unorganized, unsupported, barely has a consistent thesis. Oh well, I can fix it this weekend.

I tend to pick up accents. Even in my writing, just through osmosis I begin to imitate all sorts of styles. They’re always temporary, but it can be a real pain. And it must really be rude to the people I’m talking to, when I’m unknowingly mimicking their manner of speech. I went to a summer camp, once, where many of the counselors were from other countries (primarily England, but others as well). For most of the time there people though I was from Europe. They couldn’t quite place why, they just said I sort of sounded like it. It’s a habit I’m going to have to get rid of.

Tomorrow is Friday. Hurray for Fridays. And the three-day weekends that follow them. I’ve got nothing planned, so I can finally waste some time. I’ve accidentally let myself be overwhelmed, but life is beginning to subside. I think it’ll all be back to normal within a few days.
